Hi, does anyone know of any good movies/shows that are in Polish/dubbed in Polish? Preferably on instant play, but any suggestions are great.

I just downloaded some Polish films from Netflix UK, to watch on my next trip. So I can't tell you how good they are but the reviews I read through IMDb were promising. The films are as follows:
It Looks Pretty From A Distance
Joanna
Huba - Eng. title is Parasite

There's also some Polish Stand-up on Netflix UK, I haven't checked that out yet. I watched Polish comedy shows in Poland and I'm utterly lost as to what's happening!

Not on Netflix but some of my faves, maybe you can find them:
Avalon (2001)
Ida (2013)
Amator (1979) - Eng. title is Camera Buff

There's also Three Colors: Blue and Three Colors: White which include Polish amongst various languages. Totally awesome films these, love 'em.

It Looks Pretty From A Distance (Z daleka widok jest piekny)
I watched on my last trip to Poland. Events unfold in a rural Polish village that end in the utter disregard for a neighbour's existence. From a language learners point of view it's fairly thin on dialogue. The story is grim to watch, it left me feeling saddened and empty.

Rezerwat, 2007
Watched this on my last trip and hugely enjoyed it. A photographer moves into Praga, Warsaw, and meets the locals. It's full of great lines and local colour. I was thoroughly charmed by the story and would watch this again.

We only dub animated movies, and movies that will have a significant young audience, like Harry Potter, Narnia, Star Wars, etc. The idea of dubbing any 'serious' movie will be ridiculous to most Polish people. I don't remember hearing about any non-animated tv series being dubbed. So you should rather search for Polish productions.

Sorry, I phrased that wrong, I meant any good Polish movies; movies/shows that have been dubbed are less desirable.

Well, there was this topic, although there's not much written there. Also I don't know about the Netflix availability.

I just read an article that said Netflix greenlit production of its first Polish language series in Fall 2017. It's supposed to come out in 2018. No news since the announcement, as of 6 Feb 2018.

There is news :) http://antyweb.pl/netflix-polski-serial-obsada/

Shortly about the plot: alternative reality where the Iron Curtain did not fall. It's 2002, 20 years after a terrorist attack ended all Polish hopes to free from the Soviet occupation and allowed USSR not to fall. Two men discover a conspiracy which allowed for it all to happen.

I heard that you "read" (one guy just reading text, original voice in background) some stuff like tv series, etc. Is that not true?

Yes. Anything foreign, not just TV series. This is always an interesting topic for foreigners in Poland, and I've heard people talk about it two times since last week only ;)

The reader exists only on TV, though. Well, also on VHS tapes and sometimes on DVDs, but almost always a subtitled version will also be present in the DVD edition. Not cinema, definitely.

Last time I was in Poland I was able download a number of movies from Netflix. Of course this option isn't available to most but it could be useful to some.

You can legally watch some older Polish tv shows and movies (most free) on YouTube - some Polish movie studios have their official channels there:
